We performed two-step enzymatic biolubricant production: castor oil hydrolysis and esterification of castor oil free fatty
acids (COFFA) rich in ricinoleic acid. The hydrolysis step utilized castor seeds as catalyst yielding 93.13 ± 5.9% COFFA
in only 1 h. In the esterification step, C. rugosa lipase (CRL) decreased the acidity by over 80% after 96 h, utilizing as
polyols neopenthylglicol (NPG), trimethylolpropane (TMP) and pentaerytritol (PE) and showed about 70% acidity decrease
without polyols, indicating the production of COFFA polymers (estolides). Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR)
confirmed estolides as the main product, reaching a polymerization degree of 6/7 without polyols, 4 in the presence of
PE and ricinoleic acid dimers in the presence of NPG and TMP. Analyses of biolubricant properties showed that the best
product was the estolide with a polymerization degree of 6/7: viscosity index of 162, oxidation stability of 51 min and
pour point of −42 °C.
